Marin County Suicide Prevention Action Plan

On May 2, 2019, BHRS hosted a Suicide Prevention Strategic Planning community event to share the findings of the needs assessment and kick off the strategic planning phase. We will be conducting strategic planning meetings in June and July with stakeholders from the schools, veterans community, transitional aged youth, local hospitals and emergency services, department of education, LGBTQ+ services, and many other. We anticipate that the strategic plan will be finalized in the fall.

We invite your ideas and suggestions on the strategic plan from now through June 2nd. Please enter comments here:

Mental Health and Substance Use Services (MHSUS) changed its name to Behavioral Health and Recovery Services (BHRS).  As such, all references in existing departmental policies and procedures to MHSUS can be understood to reference BHRS as well.
